#798 - Geoffrey Castle - 4/22/2011 - Club Sur, Seattle

This was largely covers of 70s rock songs -- some that White wrote when with Yes ("Owner of a Lonely Heart"), some that White originally performed with John Lennon ("Imagine," "Instant Karma") and some where Castle just wanted to show how well he could replace an electric guitar with a violin (e.g. "Black Magic Woman").

We would have preferred more of the Celtic style stuff, and I think Castle would be better served playing some place like the Tractor, but it was an interesting performance in a nice space.
